    Those look great my friend. I have always been partial to minnow fork tail lures. The saying is true "Big fish eat little fish." The more you can replicate, duplicate and imitate the Crappie food source the better your catching will be. Otherwise, you are just fishing. I like to make my minnow imitators in the following color combinations: white bottom/pearl top white bottom / light grey top pearl bottom/ light blue top pearl bottom / chartreuse top

    Many times I will use a combination of powder paint with a drop or two of liquid coloring to get the hue hint of color I want. I will always use some fine silver glittering in the lure for a hint of flash. Sometimes I might also add some "spike it" for tail coloring.

    The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary. John 15:7 Jesus says..." ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you."

    Practice is the key in all phases of lure making in my opinion.
